Abstract

For the first time, an arc synthesis at atmospheric pressure was carried out for obtaining silicon-doped heterofullerenes C52Si8 and C62Si8. These molecules were detected in a pyridine extract from soot by mass spectrometry in amounts of no more than 1%. The abundance ratio of the heterofullerenes is the same as that for C-60/C-70 mixture. An explanation of the absence of heterofullerenes with lower number of Si atoms is given.
